about the pickle that president obama is in with regard to syria. you two in the middle, the democrats know, especially you, cornell, that president obama beat hillary clinton, who was unbeatable, everyone thought, in 2008 in part because of the fact that he was an anti-war candidate against iraq. now he finds himself in a position where this could be a really serious situation with chemical weapons in syria. and there could be mounting pressure, internationally, to get involved. >> it is a pickle. because on the one side, your sort of the basically the democratic party and not just the democratic party, but americans broadly do not want troops on the ground and bombing in syria. once we start bombing, we kind of own part of the situation there. so there's a tough place. but at the same time, when, if they are using chemical weapons against their own people, the president is going to have to make the case against the american people that they have to decide their own fate. however, there's got to be rules of engagement and they've crossed the line. >> talk to me about the left. if the
do as they're told to kill obama care even if that means shutting down the federal government or else. fueling this is the right-wing base of the country that now commands the fears of republican congressmen far more than anything the weak john boehner can say or do or pretend to do or hope to do. here is a town hall meeting held by robert pettinger. pay close attention to who's calling the attention here. does this guy look anything like john boehner? even a little? >> real quick, easy question. this is what the tea party wants to know. will you vote with mike lee to defund obama care? yes or no? >> a thoughtful answer? >> i want yes or no. >> no. >> if any republican votes against it, does not get funded. that's a fact. >> it has to be signed by the president of the united states. >> will you make a stand -- >> shut down the government. >> do you think harry reid is going to pass that in the senate? >> it doesn't matter. >> we need to show the american people we stand for conservative values. >> i'm joined by democratic strategist steve mcmahon, and republican strategist john. it's

. president obama has ordered 19 embassies and consulates to be closed due to a potential threat. and stepped up drone attacks on terrorists overseas. today he spoke to marines in california about the threat we still face. >> because of you, osama bin laden is no more. because of you "caught on camera's" top ranks have been hammered. even though the decimated the al qaeda leadership that attacked us on 9/11, al qaeda affiliates and like-minded extremists still threaten our homeland, still threaten our diplomatic facilities, still threaten our businesses abroad. we've got to take these threats seriously and do all we can to confront them. >> as we speak american diplomats and members of the military are serving in harm's way overseas. it's time for us all to unite. but some republican politicians think it's time to take pot shots at the president. >> it causes our allies to be concerned. >> these al qaeda types are on steroids thinking we're weaker. >> you don't have to close your embassies like cowards to go running away. >> a bunch of cowards? that's beyond offensive. and some right wing pun
about the negative effects of obama care. that's their big plan? bring a tripod, smile, and make stuff up about health care? republicans are living in a fantasy world. but their extremist agenda could make millions of americans suffer in the real world. joining me now is congresswoman jan schakowsky, democrat from illinois, and joan walsh, editor at large for salon.com. thank you for coming on the show. >> thanks, reverend al. >> congresswoman, do republicans really think they can sell a government shutdown to voters back at home? >> it's hard for me to imagine. and the question is why. why do they want to shut down the government? well, i guess the way they manage the house right now, nothing is getting done. it's kind of like a government shutdown since it's the least productive congress that we've had. but what, to get rid of obama care? the majority of americans actually don't want the repeal of obama care. and it's so cynical. it's really kind of a malpractice, political malpractice that they're going into. they're going to be spending their summer not only talking about how we sh
stories that continue to eat into the second half of the obama presidency. as harry truman said if you want a friend in washington, get a dog. president obama did so this week with the addition of sunny, another portuguese water dog, companion to bo and one of the few bright spots in the dog days of summer. joining me today, correspondent for "the guardian" anna marie cox and former director of speech writing for the president -- i can't get the words out, i'm so excited, columnist for the daily beast and co-founder of fenway strategies, jon favreau and "washington post" columnist and msnbc political columnist eugene robinson. joining us now is chuck todd who is also, of course, host of msnbc's "the daily rundown." before we get into the actual policy here, i want to talk about the sort of bird's-eye view as far as what the president is doing on this great middle class tour if you will. to me it seems like he's trying to build up as much political capital as possible before he gets back to washington. what do you think he's trying to do? >> i think he's trying to talk about what people
. >> is it fair to say then that you don't think that what president obama announced last week in the press conference about a new board to oversee this is going to be good enough for you? >> well, he's had a board that had 14 members and now it's down to 4. no, i'm not interested. we have one. it's called congress. >> right. >> called the leg lative branch. if you want an advisory board, we have one. so you will have to just stop letting a few people know what's going on with the intelligence programs but let everyone know and if you don't, then you're going to find some of these tools are not available anymore. >> sounds reasonable to me. thank you so much. >>> it's becoming a habit. president obama trying to make an end run around congress. yet again. in june, president obama vowed to make climate change a priority of his second term and this week epa chief mccarthy saying that the president plans to bypass congress to get that done. >> they do think that this climate change issue and its impacts are fundamentally an economic challenge. they are fundamentally an economic challenge and i
u.s. attorneys for inappropriate reasons. the department of justice, when president obama came in, had a respected career u.s. attorney who was the -- who put in charge of investigating this. we are here nearly five years later and the justice department refuses to release that report because it exonerates attorney general gonzalez and the bush white house of any attempt to bring politics to bear on the remufl of nine u.s. attorneys for what were good and justifiable reasons. so if they won't do that when it's an issue involving the previous administration because they don't want to remove the cloud over attorney general gonzalez and over those of us who were accused of being involved in a political effort to remove u.s. attorneys, do you have any confidence that attorney general holder would appoint a tough, rapidly acting special prosecutor who would get to the bottom of this? no, i don't. >> karl, the failure to release can't drive us completely. the problem is there are so many allegation of political overtones in this. i will get to the op-ed piece that was elijah cummings, c
is getting hard core. urging citizens to burn their obama care draft cards. of course, there is no such thing as an obama care draft card. you've got to print your own out and pretend and burn that. what if i told you the science behind it might change the world and help save the planet at the same time? a full discussion of the future of food is coming up. but we begin tonight with breaking news in the middle east north africa and southeast asia where 19 u.s. embassies and consulates are closed tonight due to continued fears of an imminent terror attack. >> we face an ongoing threat from al qaeda and its affiliates. there are individuals and organizations out there that are focused on doing the united states and the american people harm as well as doing harm to our people. >> the embassy and consulate closings span across 21 countries where initially announced on friday along with a worldwide travel alert to u.s. citizens abroad. today, jay carney did his best to hold specifics, but he did confirm the threat is coming from the al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. and the u.s. took the extraord
with president obama. >> so over the last few weeks i've been visiting towns all across the country. >> president obama is on the road again. >> talking about what we need to do to secure a better bargain for the middle class. >> president obama just touched down in phoenix. >> hello, phoenix! >> greeting the president at the airport will be arizona governor jan brewer. >> the same jan brewer who last year greeted the president -- >> you can never -- >> with a now infamous finger wag. >> today is part of a summer push by the white house. >> billing it as a major policy speech. >> trying to tout the recovery of the u.s. housing market. >> our housing market is beginning to heal. >> the housing plan has something for everyone. >> let's invest in affordable rental housing. >> something for renters and new buyers. >> he's going to propose something that has bipartisan support. >> private lending should be the backbone of the housing market. >> reducing the government risk in fannie and freddie. >> i know that sounds confusing to folks who call me a socialist. >> the other thing he's doing tonight is
. president obama was secretly telling dmitri medvedev to ignore all the election year politics, it's just politics. after that, the u.s. and russia could be great friends. maybe that wasn't it, maybe the flexibility he was speaking about was a great insult. a yo mama joke, perhaps, that would better explain what has happened since. relations are deteriorating at a very rapid pace. the president cancelled a planned meeting with russian president putin. the first time any american president has cancelled a publicly announced visit to russia since the end of the cold war. the white house explained the cancellation including, missile defense, and arms control, they cited russia's decision to thumb the u.s. in the eye by granting edward snowden temporary asylum. >> i was disappointed because even though we don't have an extradition treaty with them, traditionally we have tried to respect if there's a law breaker or alleged law breaker in their country. we evaluate it and try to work with them, they didn't do that with us. >> that same interview, the president spoke out forcefully against russi
confronted at town hall meetings over obama care and a government shutdown threat. >> i think even if you do not believe in your heart number one it will pass, or number two it's appropriate, you need to represent us. and we're tired of having to come down on this again and again. >> let me talk to you a little bit about the consequences of what a complete government shutdown is. number one, that means your troops in the field don't get paid. military is not -- i'm sorry, yes. well, of course i wouldn't do that. but that would happen. that -- well, now i listened to your question, and i'll let you have the microphone again if you want to. >> republican tom cole getting booed for saying that it's more important to pay the troops than hold a government hostage to right-wing demands. and he is not the only one. >> this is what the tea party wants to know. will you vote with mike lee and meadows here to defund obama care, yes or no? >> a thoughtful answer? >> i want yes or no. >> no. do you think harry reid is going to pass anything in the senate? >> it doesn't matter. well need to show the amer
that it was revealed, the obama administration's nsa spy program is far more invasive than originally suspected. new polling data has emerged indicating this unprecedented invasion of privacy is taking a major toll on the president's popularity. >>> hi, everybody, i'm monica crowley in tonight for shaun. we'll have much more on the brand new approval numbers from karl rove. first, let's take a look at the explosive revelations at the white house. the national security agency's security network has the ability to spy on 75% of all u.s. internet traffic. in addition, quote, it retains the written consent of the e-mails sent between citizens within the u.s. and also filters domestic phone calls made with internet technology, but that's not all. according to newly declassified documents, the nsa was rebuked in 2011 by a secret court for collecting thousands of e-mails from americans. the agency admits those e-mails had absolutely no connection whatsoever to terrorism. here's why the story is so critically important. number one, nsa officials admitted to the journal that the systems' reach is so broad do
're getting some unexpected response. >> i believe that obama care is bad for america. i do. and the reason is -- and so does the president. >> what about the seniors in your district? >> what about us? >> what about us? >> excuse me real quick. the congressman was very respectful about -- >> tell him to stop lying. >> given that reaction, you'd think the party might want to rethink its plans to defund the health care law, right? wrong. today the right wing heritage group kicked off a defund obama care tour aimed at killing the law and, get this, some republicans even want to shut the government down to do it, even though they themselves admit it's a terrible idea. >> well, i don't think shutting down the government is a good idea, but i do think that we were elected, conservatives were elected to try to stop this overreach, this government takeover of health care. if we do nothing, we're just saying to the president, hey, you get your way. >> i don't think it's a good idea, but let's do it anyway. how's that for cruel? it's that type of failed logic the president called out this weekend. >
asked this disgraced rodeo clown in an obama mask to perform in his state. it speaks volumes of where this party really is. >>> and what's on your mind? you have a comment? e-mail me. friend or foe i want to know. reply al is coming. . >>> have you joined the "politicsnation" conversation on facebook yet? we hope you will. today everyone on our site was talking about the conservative reaction to this rodeo clown in a president obama mask. phil says the ones who are defending this are the real clowns. good point, phil. melanie says not surprised about this. our president has been disrespected, challenged, and dismissed by congress. melanie, you're right. just moments ago, we learned a sitting member of congress has invited this clown to perform in his home state. more on what it means for the party coming up. but first, we want to know what you think of this clown. please head over to facebook and search "politicsnation" and like us to join the conversation that keeps going long after the show ends. re more about the land than probably anyone else. we've had this farm for 30 years. we
that there is one democrat who will not be talking about this issue and that is barack obama. and the left -- this is clearly a media dump. this was clearly an opponent, someone who sees ted cruz as a threat that delivered this information and has stirred it up behind the scenes. i think most people in politics recognize what this is. i enjoy the fact that people out there are highlighting that the republican party is a big tent. we have people from all walks of life who are stepping up to the plate with bold ideas and ted cruz is one of them. >> let's go to some of the things that have been said about the birther issue from the democratic side for those that said why didn't obama produce his birth certificate when he was asked. this is in part how some of the left reacted. >> how can he go from flat earth, i don't believe in evolution to -- >> why are you putting those words in his mouth? he never said he doesn't believe in evolution. those are your words, chris. >> that's how you would like to paint him to be. >> it wasn't an issue in the primary. >> look, let's look -- >> come on. what
the obama is administration in today made it clear they would prefer that i use a different word than evacuation. here is the state department spokesperson quibbling with the press over the use of the word evacuates and insisting on explaining what the obama ed ministrations sees as a significant difference between the evacuation and what the administration is now calling the ordered departure. >> i am curious what your quibbling with the word evacuate? >> it is a technical term. >> is a non technical term. >> i think you are looking at then dictionary. >> what would you call if you were told you have to leave and they force it on the plane? >> it is called the order departure that arabs live in the arabian peninsula that despite the claims they had decimated al qaeda and other regions. >> i would point to a couple of things. the leadership of the al qaeda core has been weakened , decimated. pointing you to the president's speech just a few months ago where he talked about that on a path to defeat it is consistently expressed about affiliate's and this is an example of that. >> where
of their own medicine. president obama hit the road today with a message aimed at republicans he es had enough. >> we've seen a faction of republicans in congress that suggest that maybe america shouldn't pay its bills that have already been run up, that we should shut down government if they could shut down obama care. you know, that won't grow our economy, that won't cede jobs, that won't help our middle class. >>> he's right, we could afford it. what doesn't the gop understand? the law was passed, signed into law, upset by the supreme court, reaffirmed by the election. bron chanting. >> gentlemen, thank you for sharing your views. why would you oppose december it's going to. >>> the people have made it clear they're sick of the gop games and the president's going to make sure that republicans get that mijts. joinings me now, thank you for coming on do republicans think they can stop the law? ibilities i think this is definitely just a big show for their base, and particularly in this conversation about shutting down the government over defunding obamacare, you even have members of the repub

have a dream speech, republicans have their own dream. to impeach president obama. it's the latest sign of just how desperate the gop has become. they lost the election, they don't have an agenda, they they can't stop the president's health care law. that's why you're hearing ridiculous talk about impeachment at town halls with republican lawmakers. >> he needs to be stopped. we need to get that -- it should have been started a long, long time ago. is somebody going to finally draw up something that's going to stop this runaway train we have in the white house? >> you know, if i could write that bill and submit it -- >> do it. >> yeah. >> excuse me. it would be a dream come true. i feel your pain. i know. i stood 12 feet away from the guy and listened to him, and i couldn't stand being there. but because he is president i have to respect the office. >> it would be a dream come true? to impeach president obama? really? now, in fairness, i'd expect this type of talk coming from the republican from michigan. he's a professional santa claus impersonator and he's posed shirtless with a reind
